Grand Canyon West Art Gallery

There's no shortage of artistic talent and craftsmanship in our little town of Dolan Springs, where much of it is showcased in the Grand Canyon West Art Gallery. Stop in on your way home for souvenirs designed, created and made by local artists.

The Art Gallery is easy to miss if you're not looking for it, so be sure to look. It's next to the red Indian Trading Post with a big parking lot out front.

Mt. Tipton School Panther Garden

A dream became reality when the students at Mt. Tipton School completed their year-long project of an outdoor community garden boasting six raised bed gardens. With help and supervision from their teacher, the students built each garden with hundreds of hand-painted bricks and hauled the mulch to fill them. Then with advice from two master gardeners from the University of Arizona extension in Kingman, the students planted broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage from seed.

Here are pictures I took one month after completion of the beds.

Then a little more than a year after that, the school held an Earth Day Fair. That's when I took these pictures. There is a life-size chess-board with two- foot tall chess pieces. The centerpiece of the garden is a Panther fountain. This metal sculpture was designed, built and donated by local metal artist Shane Robinson.

American Bandstand - Dolan Springs Other Claim to Fame

Okay this dates back to the 1950's so some of you might not get it but I 'll give you a little background. American Bandstand was a popular TV show hosted by the legendary master of ceremonies, Dick Clark. Broadcast from a studio in Philadelphia, PA it featured local teenagers dancing to music of the day, and each day a live performance by one of the current musical heartthrobs.
There were a few couples who were on the show everyday, for instance Bob and Justine. I was about 9 or 10 years old watching teenage Justine dancing and I thought she was so pretty and wore the keenest clothes. Her dance partner Bob was absolutely dreamy!
Fast forward to 2016 in Dolan Springs, AZ. This is where Justine lives and works as a real estate agent.
